Dr. Lerner is an expert restorative dentist and is proud to offer a wide variety of services, including crowns and onlays in Yorktown Heights, NY. Restorative dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. It repairs the functionality and restores the size of a tooth that has suffered damage or decay beyond what can be fixed with a dental filling. If your damage is significant, the strength of your tooth may be compromised. We often see teeth with old mercury fillings that are developing cracks in the enamel and underlying structure because the filling has acted as a wedge in the tooth over time. These teeth are best restored by either an onlay or a crown that reinforces the strength of the tooth by covering a portion of it.
Wherever possible, our team at The Center For Holistic Dentistry prefers to conserve the enamel of the tooth and use an onlay. Today, we are able to do this in either gold or ceramic materials. Gold has traditionally been the material of choice, though, with advances in ceramic and bonding technology, the majority of our patients prefer the cosmetically superior ceramic onlay or crown.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth with any of the following dental issues:
- Severe discoloration
- Decay or damage
- A crack or chip
- A misaligned bite
- Weakness due to root canal therapy
